My next project

Recommended Posts

Hi all,Just arrived from holidays, and after a short participation in another team's project as gauge programmer, I'll start over my ATR72-500 (I hope it will be good enough as for Anniette to make one of her fantastic liveries for it...). I'll make it in Air Nostrum colours. So I must start looking for ideas for my next project. It HAS to be a propeller plane. Best would be a 4-prop. When I was a child (too many years ago), my father used to take me to the airport where we lived at Valencia; then I got in love with those beautiful shiny airliners. During these holidays I had the oprtunity to see some of them abandoned at El Alto airport (at Bolivia).I accept suggestions for this next project: my preferred ones are DC-4, DC-6 or Constellation, but other ideas will be OK, provided there is enough information around about them. If anyone knows about a site with photos of the cabin iterior, etc. I'll greatly appreciate (I'll make it with a VC of course).Any ideas are welcome. Thanks.Paco

Paco, Here are my preferences.1. Connie2. DC-63. DC-4 Any of these aircraft would be fantastic. We've not seen these aircraft with a VC, and I think it would be teriffic. Earl

An updated Connie would be MAGNIFICENT. There currently is NOT a decent Connie available, I have the one from Tom Gibson's site, but it just doesn't cut it anymore.Hornit

I just want to say that I am a huge fan of your ATR series (even moreso after your ATR 42-500 for its better framerates), and I am looking forward with great anticipation to your ATR 72-500! I think I'll put my request in early for an American Eagle and Air Dolomiti repaint! Maybe, though, if you get a chance, you'd be willing to make a modification to the 72-500 props and make it a 72-212? The main difference (visually) between the 72-202 and the 72-212 is that the props are shaped differently and the spinner on the -212 is noticable larger - for photo examples, check out any pictures of Atlantic Southeast Airlines' ATR 72s. As for the 4-prop planes, my vote goes to the Connie! Cheers!ATR 72-202/210:http://www.airliners.net/open.file/266256/L/http://www.airliners.net/open.file/261406/L/ATR 72-212:http://www.airliners.net/open.file/248171/L/http://www.airliners.net/open.file/211368/L/Well, that's just my 2 cents ;) Take it easy, Paco!George

A Constellation made by a designer of your talents would be the greatest addition to FS2K2 I could possibly dream of! If you included a VC even close to you ATR it would be amazing!!!!The Connie is a wonderful and historical piece of art. We desperately need an updated version.I vote for the Constellation!!!!Boone

I know I'm a little late on this one...but how about a Dash 7 for a four-prop? Just to add another suggestion to the list :)Love your -42, and I can't wait for the -72.Matt

Just a note, don't want to spill the beans or anything, but there is a fine Electra about to be finished, its very nice and I think it will stand in good stead with the community. So if you do decide on the Electra i think it would be a bit redundant. Trust me I have first hand knowledge. :)Hornit

Beautiful and interesting plane. Apart from what is said in that url as reasons for dropping the project, it had a severe limitation in crosswind landing due to the huge wingspan and low wing which made it easy to hit the ground with the wingtips at landing (according to "The world's worst aircraft").Paco
